Donald Trump Responds to Durham Report

As WLTR reported Monday, the Durham Report was released today IN FULL.

According to multiple sources, including CNN, the report is “devastating to the FBI.”

Special counsel John Durham’s ultimate conclusion is that the FBI should never have launched its investigation into President Donald Trump to begin with!

The 300 plus page report claims that the FBI used “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence” when investigating Trump, while ignoring accusations against Hilary Clinton.

CNN admitted the FBI should have never launched an investigation into Donald Trump's campaign.

But it gets better!

The Fake News Network said the report "exonerates Donald Trump."

Donald Trump spoke to Just the News and gave his reaction to the report.

He called it a "total vindication."

In addition, Trump vowed to make significant changes at the Department of Justice and FBI if he wins the 2024 presidential election.

Just the News added:

“I was very honored by this report,” Trump said in an interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast at Just the News. “I'll be honest, the detail was incredible. I waited and everybody waited, and we waited a long time. But this is tremendous detail when you look at it. He's obviously very detail oriented.

“But this is tremendous detail, total vindication,” he said of the 300-plus page Durham report released Monday by the department, under which Durham was special counsel.

Trump said the effort by rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her allies in the federal bureaucracy to create a false Russia collusion allegation against his campaign affected two consecutive elections.

"It's a shame," he said. "It's a total violation of about every rule and principle you can have. It's total dishonesty, and more than anything else that affected the 2020 presidential election, much more so than the 2016 election."

"A lot of bad things went on at DOJ and the FBI, and a lot of bad things went on a lot of places," Trump added.

"This is deep state stuff. It has been 30 years some people have been there. And they, you know, in many ways, they ran government for a long period of time," Trump continued.

Trump posted this response on Truth Social:

"WOW! After extensive research, Special Counsel John Durham concludes the FBI never should have launched the Trump-Russia Probe! In other words, the American Public was scammed, just as it is being scammed now by those who don't want to see GREATNESS for AMERICA!"


"The Durham Report spells out in great detail the Democrat Hoax that was perpetrated upon me and the American people. This is 2020 Presidential Election Fraud, just like 'stuffing' the ballot boxes, only more so. This totally illegal act had a huge impact on the Election. With an honest Media, we are looking at the Crime of the Century!" he added.


Fox News reported:

Durham said his investigation also revealed that "senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor towards the information that they received, especially information received from politically-affiliated persons and entities."

"This information in part triggered and sustained Crossfire Hurricane and contributed to the subsequent need for Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation," the report said. "In particular, there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump's political opponents."

"The Department did not adequately examine or question these materials and the motivations of those providing them, even when at about the same time the Director of the FBI and others learned of significant and potentially contrary intelligence," the report said.

Durham is referring to past FBI leadership in his report – specifically former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
